In my blog I plan to chat about nature, crafts, baking, gardening, beekeeping, family, and whatever else seems appropriate at the time. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

Day 1 & 2 in St. Thomas

We made it!  
We went to St. Thomas, USVI, in June for Ashley's wedding.
We were the first group to get there.  We all had different days/times that we were arriving and leaving because it was a big group and a lot of people.  We all knew we'd be there on Friday and Saturday though.

We had about a 45 minute layover in the Miami, Fla airport on the way there.  Note to self-ALWAYS allow way more time than 45 minutes anytime you are in the Miami airport.  Quite frankly, allow yourself more time when you are flying...PERIOD!  Someday I'll tell you about our trip just trying to get to our airport about an hour and a half away.

Free Rum Punch on arrival!!!!
Since American Airlines feeds you absolutely NOTHING on their planes, and since we only had a 45 minute layover, and since my Shug and I almost missed our flight completely, we all decided the first thing we'd do is eat dinner.

And as we sit down Theresa says, "Look what I brought!"  
Activity options for the week.
We weren't even off of the plane an hour yet...
and most of the activities I was planning involved a beach drink and sand!

We stayed at Bolongo Bay and they had a free appetizers and rum drink special so we went for it!

These will be some of the pictures I longingly look at this winter!
My Shug in the water!
I don't think you can take a bad picture at Bolongo Bay.
The pool, swim up bar, and restaurant overlooking the pool, and ocean.

The view from our room

Me....doing my activities!
Iquanas are there like squirrels are here.  They are everywhere!

Did I show you the view from our room?

Just in case you  missed it!

On our second day there we went to a place called The Pie Whole for dinner!
It was a hole in the wall place that had delicious salads and pizza!
Waiting for our taxi driver to come pick us up

  2. What a lovely spot Cindy, I'll be dreaming of it this winter!

  3. Wow I need to climb into one of your bags when you fly out for one of your trips. So envious. Looks like it was a great spot to stay!

  4. Cindy, That looks like a fun time. Can you believe my two step grands are both getting married tomorrow. One in Cincinnati and one in Greenfield. I chose not to go to I did not want to hurt either of my daughters' feeling...for they helped raise these kids. So I just gave them the same gifts and said I could not decide which to go to without hurting someone's feelings. I hope that never happens again. Blessings, xoxo,Susie
